Truck accidents can cause serious harm to anyone involved, leaving damaged vehicles and many unexpected expenses. While we can’t prevent accidents from happening, we are dedicated to helping the people involved and find the justice they seek. 

The Davis Law Group was founded on that exact principle — fairly representing people in accidents and getting them the compensation they deserve for consequential costs. Our lawyers work hard to help accident victims cover costs after an incident. While money can’t always fix what’s been broken or lost, it can certainly help the situation. We pride ourselves on understanding that our clients come to us at times of need and not always under positive circumstances. Our staff is dedicated to being sensitive to each situation and to manage client needs throughout the litigation process. 

Truck accidents happen — and we’re always here to help our clients when they do. 

Truck accidents

Driving a truck comes with many risks while on the road, oftentimes from other drivers sharing it with you. Defensive driving is always the best practice, but it’s impossible to predict what hazards a driver might encounter while on the road. Luckily there is insurance to cover accidents and lawyers like us to help when they happen.

Some common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Unfavorable weather conditions causing the road to be more treacherous than usual
  • Unforeseen vehicle issues (i.e. brakes not working properly, head or tail lights out to not signify to other drivers which direction you’re turning) 
  • Erratic driving by other drivers on the road who don’t leave you time or space to handle your truck properly 
  • Something enters the road or there’s an object in the road that was unavoidable 
  • Night driving or driving without prescription eyeglasses; long periods of endless driving that leaves drivers exhausted but still on the road
  • Inexperience driving this type of vehicle and not handling it well

Any accident is traumatizing and interrupts daily life. Consequences of truck accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Mild to severe injury for any parties involved
  • Vehicle damages big and small, sometimes totaling a truck leaving the driver without that form of transportation 
  • Points off a driver’s license and accident-specific tickets from law enforcement 
  • Increase in insurance rates and possible loss of coverage depending on the severity of the accident 
  • Loss of work if driving a truck for a job 
  • Accidental deaths of drivers, passengers, or pedestrians 

After the initial shock of an accident, the stress begins with police reports, insurance claims, medical bills, and hiring a lawyer. We’re here to help make things easier after you’ve been involved in a truck accident.
